Larry was born on May 4, 1949, in Mandan to Donald and Polly Belden. He graduated from Mandan High School and lived in Mandan as well as various towns in North Dakota and Wyoming. His primary occupation was working on the B&B crew for the Burlington Northern Railroad.

Larry loved anything to do with classic cars and belonged to numerous car clubs including the North Dakota Street Rod Association (NDSRA). He enjoyed working on cars and attending classic cars shows. He also enjoyed pool and bowling and was a member of leagues for both. One of his favorite activities was enjoying coffee almost every morning at McDonalds with his friends, neighbors, coworkers, and car family. His other hobbies included hunting, fishing, and watching family and friends bowl and play softball. He never missed a chance to bring pies to gatherings!
